Our hearing can be rather illusive, in that we aren’t always aware when something has gone wrong. For many people, hearing loss happens very gradually over time and many people are not even aware that their hearing ability has declined. Others simply chose not to address it, but the bottom line is that nearly 30 million Americans experience some type of hearing impairment. Not only can hearing loss affect our social lives, but it can actually decrease your level of safety as well. The good news is that an easy hearing evaluation can put you back on track to hearing well in no time.
The team at Active Hearing Center encourages everyone to complete a thorough hearing evaluation, even if you don’t currently have any symptoms. Using state-of-the-art equipment, we can determine your current hearing ability and may even uncover hearing loss that you weren’t aware of. Participating in these tests is easy and they are completely painless. We’ll gain a better understanding of the volumes and frequencies you can hear as well as how well you understand the speech of others. If you do have hearing loss, it’s our goal to provide you with comprehensive information so that you can decide which course of treatment is right for you.
We pride ourselves on taking a personalized approach to your hearing healthcare and never attempt to recommend options that take on a “one size fits all” mindset. Instead, we know that your hearing needs are as unique as you are and we will work to create a customized solution that fits both your budget and lifestyle. At Active Hearing Center we utilize a collaborative approach to hearing healthcare, meaning that your needs and priorities are just as important as our recommendations and we will work together as a team. We also understand the value that friends and family can bring to this important visit, so we encourage all patients to bring a loved one with them to their evaluation. This can help to make you feel more relaxed and allows you to discuss your options with someone you love and trust.
A complete hearing evaluation includes gaining an understanding of your medical history, your current lifestyle and any symptoms or concerns you may have. Both a physical examination of your ears as well as a battery of tests will indicate if there’s a need for further treatment and you’ll never be pressured to make a purchase or decision. Our experienced team is available to answer any questions you have and will be here to support you every step of the way.
